Colombia La Lomita Coffee

This beautiful Colombian coffee is produced by Ricardo Canal, the third-generation coffee producer from Farallones, Cali. Ricardo’s father was going to abandon the farm because the commodity coffee price was simply too low to make a living out of it. He took over La Lomita in 2012 and started to renovate the farm, focusing on producing specialty coffee.

Castillo is the only varietal in Lo Lomita. Due to its resistance to rust, it is very common for most of the coffee producers in Colombia. This washed coffee is hand-picked at maximum ripeness and floated in water to remove the unhealthy coffee cherries. The coffee was sitting in a plastic vessel with pulp (coffee cherry) for 24 hours, this transfers more sweetness to the coffee seed.

The coffee pulp then was removed by depulper machine and fermented in a tank without water for another 36 hours. The entire process brings enough clarity in the cup and it is bright in acidity with loads of berry note.

Flavours: Raspberry, damson and brown sugar
Origin: Farallones
Varietal: Castillo
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1650 masl
